    This is a lovely old Waterers hybrid, that has large trusses of lavender pink flowers, each lighlty freckled with rusty red spots. These emerge in late spring from deep, irridescent purple buds, that form at the ends of the leafy stems. Easy to grow, it tolerates cold and partial shade, and its dense rounded habit offers year-round structure. A must for the woodland garden.

  • Garden care: Avoid planting too deeply. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of leaf mould around the base of the plant each spring.
